Chick stories

Yesterday's Chick story: All of us were gathered on my bed. Here's part of the conversation which ensued:
Chick: Daddy has been eating grapes.
Me: Why do you think that?
Chick: Because he has a grape in his throat (foat).
I looked and she was pointing to his adam's apple.
HH: Maybe I've been eating an apple.
Chick: No, it's a grape.
Me: Daddy has a lump in his throat.
Chick: Yeah. Daddy has a yump in his foat.
The weekend mornings when the girls join us in our bed is the setting for some of my favorite family memories so far.

Other news: Monkey has started dancing. Mostly it's bending her knees in time to music when she's standing. She also claps her hands, making her even more monkey-like.

The Everett Historic Theater had a "yard sale" (on the stage) this weekend. I spent $2.00 and got a navy blue v-neck sweater for me, and dress up stuff for the girls-- feather boa, string of pearls, turquoise colored bead necklace, and a head scarf.

Here are some dressup pics. The first are from Saturday, and then today I decided that I didn't really want to accomplish anything & should dress Chick up for better pictures (but my batteries are almost dead, so we didn't get to take many). We even did MAKEUP, which hopefully won't fuel any fires for Chick....

Last Friday I visited my parents' house. My brother & his family are living there for a couple of days (just moved up from New Mexico), so in an attempt to get him to actually read my blog, here's a picture of Chick helping Evan do a puzzle.
Muffin Tin Monday: Today's theme is People & Faces. We had bread, nuts, cheese, grapes, apple, carrots, & sweet peas...which Chick got to play with a lot.
MTM is hosted by Her Cup Overfloweth... check it out to see everyone else's muffin tins.

Dress up sounds like fun - we should play too. Although I'm not sue the results would be as cute.

Those pictures "all dressed up" are sooooooooo cute! My 3-year old loves to dress up and when she gets to put on a little makeup...oh, yes that is a great day for her! ;)

Love your MTM...the idea to build a face on bread is great!

Thanks again for visiting my blog for MTM...hope to see you there again!
